Chair Of The Board Of Trustees

Are you passionate about making a difference in our community? We are seeking a new person to join and lead our board of trustees, offering a unique opportunity to shape the future of volunteering and community projects in Kensington and Chelsea, one of London’s most diverse boroughs.

Established in 1969, we are the oldest Volunteer Centre in the country and are deeply rooted in the local community, empowering individuals to contribute positively through volunteering. Our programmes help to break down barriers to inclusion faced by people from marginalised groups, including disabled and learning disabled people, those living with mental health challenges, people with criminal records, and people from low-income households seeking employment opportunities.

As chair, you will play a pivotal role in guiding the Volunteer Centre in its mission, fostering positive change in Kensington & Chelsea. Responsibilities include:

  • Providing strategic leadership in partnership with the chief executive.
  • Facilitating constructive and effective decision-making within the board.
  • Maintaining positive relationships with stakeholders and representing VCKC at various events.
  • Supporting the development and cohesion of the board team.

By becoming chair of our board of trustees, you will have the opportunity to drive positive change and contribute to a vibrant community. If you are ready to make a difference, apply now and be part of something meaningful. We are really looking forward to hearing from you!
